Betty Boop: The Essential Collection, Volume 3 This week the DVD Talk Review Database has some great new entries, including a few discs you may have overlooked. Recent DVD reviews include: Betty Boop: The Essential Collection, Volume 3 - Olive Films' best collection of Max and Dave Fleischer cartoons to date; Riot in Cell Block 11 - a smart film that raises some issues to which there aren't a lot of easy answers and this Criterion Blu-ray is excellent in pretty much every regard; and Show Boat - a landmark film, one still quite emotionally powerful, adult, and captivating it just has to be seen. Other recent reviews include: King Kong Escapes, Zatch Bell Collection, and Pig.  Visit the DVD Talk Review Database for all the latest reviews including an entire section devoted to reviews of DVDs out this week.

Draft Day Before you head off to the cinema this weekend, check out DVD Talk's reviews of the latest releases including: Draft Day - Kevin Costner stars as the GM of the Cleveland Browns in the first real surprise of 2014... it is a lot of fun; Oculus - an eerie film that defies expectations and delivers on both its scares and its intelligent sense of storytelling; Jodorowsky's Dune - a ripping yarn about director Alejandro Jodorowky's aborted mid-1970s adaptation of Frank Herbert's Dune that deserves to be seen as more than just a niche film; and Under the Skin - Jonathan Glazer's adaptation of Michel Faber's violent science-fiction novel is a film that people will either love or hate, but it is the kind of movie that obsessive cinephiles could talk about for hours on end . Other recent films include: Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Noah, Nymphomaniac: Volume II, The Raid 2: Berandal, Muppets Most Wanted, Nymphomaniac: Volume I, Bad Words, Need for Speed, Veronica Mars, The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Wind Rises, and The Lego Movie (3D). Check out these, and more, in DVDTalk's Theatrical Review section.

Ranma 1/2 Set 1 TV on DVD remains very popular with more and more favorites being released. New TV reviews include: Ranma 1/2 Set 1 - This classic anime series is funny, exciting, and has a surprising amount of heart.... and Viz gets everything right with this HD release; Dr. Kildare: The Complete Second Season - a wealth of intelligent, finely-wrought dramas, beautifully packaged and delivered, episode after episode; and William & Mary: The Complete Collection - a wonderfully romantic yet realistic dramedy from the UK staring Martin Clunes. Other shows recently reviewed include:  Mystery Science Theater 3000: XXIX, George Gently - Series 6, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2012): Mutagen Mayhem.  Want more?  Check out all of the TV on DVD reviews in the DVD Talk database.

King Kong vs. Godzilla This week the DVD Savant has a number of new reviews and articles including: King Kong vs. Godzilla - Goofy dialogue and Universal stock music peg the classic confrontation of the atomic dragon and the hairy ape as a kiddie attraction plain and simple; The Hidden Fortress - Toshiro Mifune must trick two foolish runaway soldiers into helping him sneak a princess through enemy lines... it's high adventure in good humor; and Riot in Cell Block 11 - Don Siegel made his name as a maker of hard hitting genre thrillers in this prison riot/exposé of prison conditions. Read all this and more in this week's DVD Savant.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Some pretty cool discs are being released this week. Check out these new titles: The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug [review] - Action packed with a constantly moving narrative, this film takes plenty of liberties with the Tolkien source but expands into a grand cinematic adventure; August: Osage County [review] - With its arrival to video, those who have only heard about this movie have little excuse left to miss out on engaging performances from Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, and Margo Martindale; and Young at Heart [review] - Gordon Douglas' 1954 romance is an enjoyable melodrama that effectively uses the seemingly unlikely pairing of good girl Doris Day and bad boy Frank Sinatra. Other reviews of note include I Am Divine [review] , A Touch of Sin [review], and Bang! Bang! You're Dead! [review]. Be sure to check out our DVD Talk Review Database for all the latest reviews including an entire section devoted to reviews of DVDs out this week.

Persona: The Criterion Collection Some great DVD and Blu-ray reviews have been added to the the DVD Talk Review Database recently including: Persona: The Criterion Collection - Ingmar Bergman's Persona challenges the audience's perception of identity and psychosis in ways that continue to influence the psychological-drama genre, ; The Pawnbroker - This great-looking and great-sounding presentation marks the perfect time to acquaint (or reacquaint) yourself with this forgotten classic; and Men in War - A low-budget combat drama with the intensity of a paranoid thriller, this movie is an exciting, tough, and surprisingly suspenseful film. Other recent reviews include: Sleep, My Love, Vitaphone Comedy Collection, Volume Two: Shemp Howard (1933-1937), and 5 Fingers.  Visit the DVD Talk Review Database for all the latest reviews including an entire section devoted to reviews of DVDs out this week.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier It'd be a good weekend to go to the movies. Here are DVDTalk's recent theatrical reviews: Captain America: The Winter Soldier - a fun action feature that is an entertaining ride and improves upon the first one; Afflicted - this film proves that there are still filmmakers out there who are coming up with unique ideas, who enjoy keeping us on the edge of our seats; Nymphomaniac: Volume II - an impressive way for Lars von Trier to end his Depression Trilogy, as he utilizes unique story mechanics that many filmmakers would never dream of attempting. Other recent films include: Noah, The Raid 2: Berandal, Muppets Most Wanted, Nymphomaniac: Volume I, Bad Words, Need for Speed, Veronica Mars, The Grand Budapest Hotel, 300: Rise of an Empire, The Wind Rises, The Monuments Men, and The Lego Movie (3D).
